Hi there,

I purchased the SDL Trados Studio 2009 Starter edition in June of 2011. It was working fine until I tried to get it started recently and it keeps giving me the same error and will not open. Because it's a starter edition, I can't get any support from SDL at all and therefore, it's like money down the drain.

The error states: "The translation memory could not be found. (And then it specifies the file.) Click OK to specify its location, or Cancel to disable this translation memory."

When I click "cancel", another pop up box appears and says: "Unable to find the specified file" and that's it. I downloaded all the service packs that were on my SDL account but I still can't get this to open.

So, the file it's looking for is a ".sdltm" from a project I worked on last July from an outsourcer in Paris. Why is it looking for this file and why can't I get my Trados to open?

I would appreciate any help on this as I really need to get this running.
